Overview

You become a part of the aviation industry and its creator, when you learn the principles of aerodynamics, the materials used for production of aircrafts, their structures and types, behaviour of these materials during the flight, and acquire the skills for design, production and technical maintenance of aircrafts, as well as find solutions for other issues related to creative engineering activities in aviation.
The programme is prepared according to the recommendations of Administration of Civil Aviation of the Republic of Lithuania, it preconditions for the acquisition of the licence of aircraft technician or engineer, while guest lecturers-practitioners, who take part in the study process, provide information about the innovations in the areas of technologies and design.

Key-words:
Aircrafts – planes, gliders, helicopters.
Technologies – avionics, diagnostics, production.
Drawings – two-dimensional, three-dimensional space, design.
Constructions – structure, interaction, effective forces.

Laboratories: Aerodynamics, Avionics and Nanosatelites, etc.
Partners: Ryanair, FL Technics, Deftools.
Specialisations: Design of Aircraft, Technology of Aircrafts‘ Technical Maintenance.

Career opportunities

The lack of aviation engineers and specialists of technical maintenance of the aircrafts is a constantly increasing problem both in Lithuania and in the entire world; therefore, graduates of this programme have excellent prospects for an international career in various stages: engineers-mechanics and engineers-constructors > licenced aviation engineers and aviation specialists > executive/quality/training managers of airlines.

_ "Graduates of this programme, who understand basic and line maintenance of various aircrafts, engineering support and planning of technical maintenance, who provide services to the biggest modern aircrafts Boeing 747 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner at the aircraft technical maintenance centre in Kaunas have excellent prospects of international career in the engineering area."_ – AB "FL Technics" Aircraft Maintenance Centre in Kaunas, Manager Martynas Grigalavičius.
